“I really appreciate the extra mile you guys are going to make sure your customers are satisfied. I have a degree in business and I've studied all that stuff about how companies are doing their best to keep their customer satisfied through marketing and incentives, but I can't think of another company (in any field) that makes me as satisfied as you guys do. I'm sure there are some places that sell materials here in Japan, but even with extra cost of shipping and customs fee, I prefer to buy from LMI, because I can trust LMI's service and quality of materials. No marketing and incentives can match the solid good service and I'm a very happy LMI customer.”

Sinker Honduran Mahogany

Swietenia macrophylla 

"Sinker" refers to woods that have spent some time submerged in water. This particular Mahogany was salvaged from the rivers of Belize, where the logs were floated from mill to port around one hundred years ago. The larger and heavier logs sank and remained submerged and preserved until 2008. Being underwater allows some mineral content to penetrate the wood. This causes it to be slightly heavier and harder. The process has a strong, beneficial effect on the tap-tone of the wood, which was of rare quality to begin with, being 'old growth' and hundreds of years old.
